The Airmar 200XW-IPX7 is a more robust weather sensor option to meet the operational challenges of harsh open water environments.
Having worked with many autonomous vehicle and buoy OEMs, Airmar has further developed the 200WX to be more robust to meet the operational challenges of the harsh ocean environment and is now IPX7 rated.
The WeatherStation WX Series products offer a truly best-in-class solution at a better price point than any other weather monitoring system on the market today, enabling individuals and professionals the ability to make informed decisions based on real-time site-specific weather information.
Reliable environmental monitoring is critical for various offshore needs. The numerous sensors contained in the compact size of the 200WX is an attractive feature for installations where space is limited, such as on buoys, USVs, and AUVs.

In March and April of 2018, researchers from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UH Mānoa) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) deployed a small fleet of long-range autonomous underwater vehicles (LRAUVs) in the waters of the Pacific near Hawaii. These LRAUVs automatically collect and archive samples of seawater, enabling scientists to study and track ocean microbes with a level of detail that is unprecedented.
The team who undertook the expedition on the research vessel Falkor was hoping to survey and track Mesoscale eddies within the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) using a suite of oceanographic instruments.Read More
When we consider the glut of plastic rapidly accumulating all over the world , it's easy to see the problem of pollution and disposal of substances that don't biodegrade. However, it's not always as apparent to us that plastic pollution also means a growing number of toxic chemicals in the environment, many of which can be harmful to ecosystems.
Plastic polymers and the products made from them are wildly diverse as to chemical properties, composition, and range of potential applications, although most plastics are made from petrochemicals. Throughout the very long lifespan of any given plastic product, the material may release various hazardous substances .Read More
Ocean acidification is a simple process that has complex effects. Increasingly acidic ocean waters create a cascading series of changes and problems for marine life, as each response to the changing conditions prompts other crises. Recent research from the University of Adelaide reveals a novel problem: baby fish will have more trouble finding and reaching shelter in the acidified oceans of our shared future, placing populations of various fish at risk.
Despite how they may seem to humans, oceans are not silent worlds. They are filled with all sorts of noise, from fish sounds and whale vocalizations to the sounds produced by different kinds of habitats.Read More
